Typically a complication of long-term heartburn or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), Barrett’s esophagus is identified when the lining of the lower esophagus changes to a mixture of gastric and intestinal cells. Our upper GI specialists offer a multi-specialty team approach from initial diagnosis through treatment and ongoing monitoring to keep patients well and improve the quality of life.
Many patients suffer in silence. That’s because Barrett’s esophagus symptoms can be minimal, but the damage from long-term acid reflux can be very serious. Sometimes other diseases mimic acid reflux, making the diagnosis and treatment more complex. Our highly-skilled specialists make sure each patient with Barrett’s esophagus has a thorough diagnosis and individualized treatment plan.
Even after treatment, patients require lifestyle changes including a Barrett’s esophagus diet and life-long monitoring for any changes. Our team carefully monitors your condition for any issues or additional tissue damage.
